Recently an independent survey of 2,000 UK families, commissioned by toy company Little Tikes, reveals that parents are fed up with the lack of quality time spent together, with the average mum and dad experiencing seven pangs of guilt a week! Being too busy or tired to give kids their full attention and working long hours have been named amongst the top guilt triggers. Little Tikes has linked with Olympic Gold Medallist Greg Rutherford to encourage families to ditch the guilt and enjoy the great outdoors this summer with their ‘Little Trikers’ campaign. They’re giving 50 4-in-1 Sports Edition Trikes away to inspire families to join in the sun this summer. Log on now to www.littletikes.co.uk.
I wrote a post the other day about pregnancy and it has really got me thinking about what I wish I had known, back then, when I was pregnant with Noah, my first pregnancy. I had a lot of moments afterwards where I said “I wish I had of known that”, I suppose we all have. Those ah-ha moments are often things I tell first time pregnant ladies too.
